Esper is not another cookie-cutter MDM. Esper provides seamless end-to-end management of Android dedicated devices within a reliable, adaptable, and scalable infrastructure. Take the complexity out of managing your hospitality devices — from POS and KDS systems in restaurants to self-service kiosks at arenas — to confidently manage your entire device fleet with ease. Deploy software updates seamlessly, access devices from anywhere, gain real-time performance data, and enforce policies with precision, all from a single, user-friendly dashboard. Esper is the key to gaining total control of your devices and delivering innovative guest experiences at scale.

“To support better customer and employee experiences across our POS, tablets, and other devices, we needed a solution that worked for our next generation enterprise Android apps. Esper is a true partner. Working with them allows us to move fast, save money, and now we can make strategic decisions about what hardware to use.” - Mas Yoshida, Director, Next Gen Restaurant Technology, Taco Bell

With Esper you can:

  • Automate manual device management tasks to create clear, scalable processes and reduce the time and resources required to manage devices. 
  • Get granular control over exactly what the end user can do with your devices. Lock devices to only do one job, limit user access, or set up a virtual geofence to ensure they operate where and how you want.
  • Ensure your devices are never compromised. Get data security, control, and the ability to monitor each of your devices to easily see whether they’re at risk, vulnerable, or tampered with.
  • Completely automate the testing and rollout process to mitigate risk, limit errors, and enable more frequent releases
  • Reduce tech support expenses by enabling remote support, monitoring, and debugging of devices so you can solve issues from anywhere

“In hospitality, Android-based in-room tablets create a meaningful connection between the guest and the hotel, giving the guest broad contactless control over their stay. Guests can order dining, make service requests, adjust room controls, and much more with a few taps of a screen. Esper enables the INTELITY platform to globally deploy and manage devices across all of a customer's properties regardless of size. Through Esper's platform we can do remote installation and reduce the reliance on IT support at each hotel.”- Ira Dworkin, CTO, Intelity
